Military Appreciation Night Set for January 28
The Casper College men’s and women’s basketball teams will host “Military Appreciation Night” on Saturday, Jan. 28 beginning at 3 in the “Swede” Erickson Thunderbird Gym. All veterans and current military with a valid ID will receive free admission for themselves and a guest. Representatives from the Wyoming Army and Air National Guard will be at the games to recognize both military veterans and those currently serving.
The men and women will play against the Miles City Community College Pioneers with the women’s game scheduled to begin at 3 followed by the men’s at 5 p.m. For the women’s game, the National Anthem will be sung by Courtney Jones and the Wyoming National Guard and Air Guard will present the colors.
Before the men’s game, the Casper Children’s Chorale will sing the National Anthem and be joined by the color guard from the Wyoming Army and Air National Guard. At halftime, the Casper Children’s Chorale will perform a medley of fight songs from the five military branches. The Dance Evolutions dancers will perform following the Children’s Chorale. Lisa Goss, the veteran and Hathaway Scholarship coordinator at Casper College, noted that “Military Appreciation Day” was a way for the Casper College T-Birds to “salute our current military members and veterans for their service.”
Ticket prices are $4 for those 18 and older, $3 for those 60 and over, $2 for students aged 13 to 17, and free for those 12 and under. The “Swede” Erickson Thunderbird Gymnasium is located on the Casper College campus.
